Orange Jello Salad

I am originally from Utah.  I have heard that Utahans eat more than their share of Jello and Jello salads.  I don't believe I ate much Jello growing up, and I don't eat it often now.

I do remember my mom making a Jello salad like this a few times of picnics, but it wasn't a regular occurrence.  Before making this salad, I don't believe I had eaten a Jello salad or Jello in over a decade.

100% Whole Wheat Sandwich Bread

I am in a bread making mood right now.  This is only the second bread recipe I have posted in a while, but I have made this recipe twice and other recipe I'll post in the near future.

Last week I posted a classic 100% whole wheat recipe.  It may sound similar to this recipe, but there are some important differences.

Chocolate Pancakes with Skors

We are having some strange Fall weather this week.  It was wet and rainy on Monday, which isn't unusual for Fall.  The unusual thing about Monday is that it was humid, hot, and muggy.  It has been hot and sticky since then.

I can't go to long without posting a pancake recipe.  I have a big soft spot for pancakes.  The are a great way to eat sweet carbs for breakfast.

Chicken Methi

I am not working today because it's Columbus Day in the United States.  It is always nice to have a holiday, but I'm never sure what to do for Columbus Day.  

I don't have any traditions associated with this holiday.  I went on a short weekend trip this weekend to New Jersey, but we got back late last night, so I'm having a low key Columbus Day.

Classic 100% Whole Wheat Bread

I have gotten into making bread.  That is probably an exaggeration because I have only made bread twice in the last couple of months.

I have bought a rather large jar of yeast and a bread pan, so I feel that these two loaves are just the beginning.

Cake Mix Banana Bread

I have gotten into the habit of mailing my nieces and nephews candy for major holidays.  I create little crafty bags or boxes.  Last year I made orange jack-o-lantarn bags full of candy for Halloween.  

For Christmas, I decorated boxes of Milk Dud's to look like snowmen.  I enjoy doing it.  It lets my nieces and nephew know that I am thinking about them.

Mini Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Blossoms

The pumpkin season is upon us.  The last time I went to the grocery store I bough pumpkin yogurt.  I talked myself out of buying pumpkin cheesecake ice cream.

I haven't been to Trader Joe's this Fall yet.  I remember last year I really enjoyed their pumpkin spice cereal.  I also tried a chocolate covered pumpkin caramel.  It was delicious of course.
